If you're a RedNet user, Music Experience has an invaluable addition for your audio-over-IP system. A compact Dante-compatible stereo monitoring box, the Focusrite RedNet AM2 provides headphone and line-outs for flexible monitoring of signals from your Dante network. The AM2 gives you a convenient front-panel 1/4" TRS headphone jack that delivers healthy level to both high- and low-impedance 'phones, while a pair of balanced rear-panel male XLR line-outputs accommodate monitoring on speakers and other uses. The AM2 sports a rugged, extruded-aluminum casing with no-slip feet. The base is also threaded to accept a standard mic stand.

    Built for critical monitoring - and convenience Incorporating

    Focusrite's latest 2-channel Dante receiver, the RedNet AM2 delivers state-of-the-art D/A conversion (sample rates up to 96kHz, with greater than 118dB dynamic range) for critical monitoring on headphones or speakers. The unit is fitted with large volume knobs for headphone and line-output levels; the line-outs also sport a handy mute button with indicator LED. Power, signal level, and network indicators are also onboard to keep you status savvy. To connect to your network or daisy-chain to other network devices, the AM2 provides dual locking Ethercon connectors. The Focusrite RedNet AM2 can be network powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or by the rear-panel barrel connector and included DC power supply.

      What Focusrite Says...

      Stereo Dante headphone amplifier and line output interface with PoE RedNet AM2 is a compact Dante-compatible stereo monitoring unit combining headphone and balanced line outputs for monitoring of signals from the Dante network wherever required. RedNet AM2 features a 1/4" front-panel TRS headphone socket plus a pair of rear-mounted balanced line outputs with male XLR connectors for loudspeaker monitoring and other applications. RedNet AM2 can be powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via an external DC power supply (included). RedNet AM2 is ideal for adding headphone outputs to a studio-based system as well as offering a solution for education, live sound and broadcast.

      High power headphone amp

      Designed to drive a wide range of headphones, the headphone amplifier will drive high impedance (up to 600 ohms) headphones at substantial levels, making the unit suitable for use on-stage as well as front-of-house or in a studio environment. The XLR line-level outputs have software-switchable 0dBFS reference levels of +18 or +24dBu.

      Superb-quality D/A conversion

      RedNet AM2 includes a 2-channel Dante receiver based around Audinate's 'Ultimo' hardware and incorporates high-quality digital to analogue conversion at standard sample rates from 44.1 to 96kHz for stereo network audio monitoring via the line level outputs - for use with loudspeakers for example - or headphones, both outputs offering better than 118dB dynamic range). The unit may be clocked either internally or via the Dante Network Master. Two large volume control knobs are provided for Headphone and Line output levels, the latter featuring a mute button with associated LED. Other indicators show the presence of power, network and signal. The signal indicator shows red for 0dBFS, orange at -6dBFS and green at -42dBFS on either channel, while the network indicator illuminates when a valid network connection is present on either Port 1 or 2.

      Power over Ethernet or external PSU

      The two locking etherCON connectors are connected to an integrated Gigabit network switch, allowing connection to the network and to and to daisy-chain to additional network devices such as a laptop running Dante Virtual Soundcard. RedNet AM2 is powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via a rear-panel barrel connector and included 12V DC power supply. The power LED indicates green when powered via PoE and red when the external power supply is in use.

      Mounting options

      The compact unit, mounted in an enclosure based around a sturdy road-worthy aluminium extrusion, is fitted with non-slip feet, and can either sit securely on a flat surface or be mounted on top of a mic stand using the standard 3/8" BSW threaded bush incorporated in the basee

      Full Dante interoperability

      Like the entire RedNet product range, RedNet AM2 interoperates seamlessly and fully with any other Dante audio-over-IP network components and infrastructure. Patching and interconnection can be managed with Dante Controller on Mac or PC.

      Stereo headphone and line output, PoE supplied

      RedNet AM2 is a compact, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) -supplied stereo analogue output device for any Dante audio-over-IP network. Featuring a powerful headphone amp, capable of driving both high and low impedance headphones, RedNet AM2 is the ideal signal monitoring device to add extra functionality to your audio network. A pair of rear-panel XLR outputs offers line level signals of up to 24dBu with top panel level control and mute switch, while the front panel 1/4" headphone output is capable of driving high signal levels perfect for monitoring in high-SPL environments. The bottom of the sturdy aluminium and steel chassis features a threaded mic stand boss allowing RedNet AM2 to be placed in any convenient location whether on a desk or at a performer's fingertips on a stand. Finally, the IEEE standard PoE input allows a single Ethernet cable to provide power, remote control, clocking and audio data to RedNet AM2e
